Lucy Nichollsin Industry News

Howardson Group, manufacturers of the Dennis and SISIS range of grounds maintenance equipment, are delighted to announce the acquisition of Lloyds Mowers of Letchworth and Hunter Grinders.

This strategic alliance builds on the Dennis range of mowers with the addition of the Lloyds Paladin cylinder mower - renowned for cricket, bowls and golf along with the trailed Leda and Giant gangs, used extensively for wide area mowing.

Hunter Grinders is known worldwide in golf and stadia for their superior grinding performance on cutting cylinders and bottom blades.

"We see a lot of potential with both brands," Ian Howard MD of Howardson Group commented. "We have been in discussion with Lloyds for quite some time. We consider the brands much like our existing ones - well built, designed to do the job and with longevity."

Clive Nottingham, the well-known face of Lloyds and Hunters, will work closely with the Howardson senior management team as the two brands are embedded into the wider group of companies at Kirk Langley.

The brands will be showcased at BTME 2023 with their own dedicated stand.
